Description
Sheppard demonstrates that the colony was a fragmented and pluralistic community before the war and remained so after it. Upper Canadians were divided by racial, religious, linguistic, and class differences and the majority of settlers had no strong ties to either the United States or Britain, with most men avoiding military service during the war. Reviewing the claims submitted for damages attributed to the fighting, he argues that British forces as well as enemy troops were responsible for widespread destruction of private property and concludes that this explains why there was little increase in anti-American feeling after the war. Much of the wartime damage occurred in areas west of York (now Toronto). This was the cause of grievances harboured by settlers in the western part of Upper Canada against their eastern counterparts long after the war had ended. As well, some Upper Canadians profited from wartime activities while others suffered greatly. Only later, in the 1840s when these issues had faded from memory, did Canadians begin to create a favourable version of wartime events. Using garrison records, muster rolls, diaries, newspapers, and damage claims registered after the war, the author delves beyond the rhetoric of wartime loyalties and reveals how the legacy of war complicated colonial politics.

Download #4 The Meaning of Rehabilitation and its Impact on Parole eBook Pdf ePub and Kindle

This book queries the concept of rehabilitation to determine how, on a legislative and policy level, the term is defined as a goal of correctional systems. The book explores what rehabilitation is by investigating how, at different moments in time, its conceptualization has shaped, and been shaped by, shifting norms, practices, and institutions of corrections in California. The author calls for a rethinking of theoretical understandings of the corrections system, generally, and parole system, specifically, and calls for an expansion in the questions asked in reintegration studies. The book is designed for scholars seeking to better understand the relationship between correctional systems and rehabilitation and the full scope of rehabilitation as a legislative goal, and is also suitable for use as teaching tool for historical, textual, and interviewing methods.

"Paroles interdites" tente de dégager l'évitement langagier et gestuel propre à quelques sociétés d'Afrique, d'Amérique du Nord, d'Asie, d'Europe et d'Océanie. La réflexion porte sur le pouvoir de la parole, sur l'obligation ou le sens du secret, ainsi que sur la place occupée par les comportements susceptibles d'affecter la qualité des relations interpersonnelles, les valeurs partagées, ainsi que la paix sociale. Entre protection et destruction, la parole réalise ce qu'elle donne à entendre. Elle peut tuer, tout comme le silence qui lui est consubstantiel.

Every day, about 1,600 people are released from prisons in the United States. Of these 600,000 new releasees every year, about 480,000 are subject to parole or some other kind of postrelease supervision. Prison releasees represent a challenge, both to themselves and to the communities to which they return. Will the releasees see parole as an opportunity to be reintegrated into society, with jobs and homes and supportive families and friends? Or will they commit new crimes or violate the terms of their parole contracts? If so, will they be returned to prison or placed under more stringent community supervision? Will the communities to which they return see them as people to be reintegrated or people to be avoided? And, the institution of parole itself is challenged with three different functions: to facilitate reintegration for parolees who are ready for rehabilitation; to deter crime; and to apprehend those parolees who commit new crimes and return them to prison. In recent decades, policy makers, researchers, and program administrators have focused almost exclusively on "recidivism," which is essentially the failure of releasees to refrain from crime or stay out of prison. In contrast, for this study the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) of the U.S. Department of Justice asked the National Research Council to focus on "desistance," which broadly covers continued absence of criminal activity and requires reintegration into society. Specifically, the committee was asked (1) to consider the current state of parole practices, new and emerging models of community supervision, and what is necessary for successful reentry and (2) to provide a research agenda on the effects of community supervision on desistance from criminal activity, adherence to conditions of parole, and successful reentry into the community. To carry out its charge, the committee organized and held a workshop focused on traditional and new models of community supervision, the empirical underpinnings of such models, and the infrastructure necessary to support successful reentry. Parole, Desistance from Crime, and Community Integration also reviews the literature on desistance from crime, community supervision, and the evaluation research on selected types of intervention.

Bellamy, Howard, Wolstenholme. Trois noms qui ont déjà marqué l'Histoire de la Musique. Car Muse est sans aucun doute l'un des rares groupes à avoir bouleversé le rock ces deux dernières décennies. Muse, ce sont trois génies qui élèvent leurs instruments au-delà même des limites humaines. Muse, c'est surtout 21,5 millions d'albums vendus dans le monde et plus de 1 400 concerts donnés depuis 1994. Mais derrière le plus grandiose des artistes, il y a toujours un public. Et ce livre offre aujourd'hui la parole à ces voix multiples et précieuses des fans de Muse. Ils ont été plus de 200 à répondre présent pour se confier avec une inspiration et une confiance extraordinaires. Entre exaltation et délicatesse, avec humour, avec ivresse, ils se racontent dans cette relation si particulière qui enlace l'admirateur à l'idole. Ils évoquent le choc de la toute première écoute, de la première rencontre parfois, ils plongent dans leurs émotions les plus pures, ils livrent les désillusions comme les instants de grâce. Et leurs voix se répondent, parfois enflammées ou fragiles, parfois plus brutes ou plus secrètes. Mais toujours sincères et profondes. On n'encense pas des génies du rock si on n'est pas rock soi-même. Et les fans de Muse sont aussi flamboyants et transportés que les trois virtuoses. Voyager aux côtés des fans de Muse est une expérience fabuleuse dont on ressort ébloui et plus grand.
